What is Microneedling?
The concept of microneedling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical injury such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. We us the SkinPen ® - the only FDA-approved microneedling device available for use in U.S. It is used to rejuvenate the skin and to improve the skin surface by reducing fine lines, expression lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and acne scars. As the microneedling device moves across the skin, it makes pinpoint punctures to create very minor micro-“injuries.” In response to the perceived “injury,” a cascade of growth factors is released, which in turn triggers new collagen synthesis. This process has two major benefits - it effectively stimulates collagen formation and provides a clear channel for topical serums to be absorbed through the surface of the skin. By persistently triggering this healing process with a series of needling treatments, the body keeps repairing the skin incrementally and cumulatively to offer a result similar to fractional laser treatments or chemical peels, but without the side effects and extended downtime. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.
